3 Ways To Eat Your Way Through The Weekend

In-N-Out Burger and Wine Pairing: Heck, if there's an In-N-Out University, then a sophisticated wine pairing with SoCal's best burgers isn't that far out of the realm of possibility. Wally's Wines will be hosting their annual gathering this Saturday from noon-3 p.m., making for the ultimate lazy weekend lunch. You can find out more infohere.
Kentucky Derby At Bludso's: Our favorite Texas-style barbecue jointalways has Mint Juleps on tap, but on Saturday they're only $6 during the racing festivities. As always, there will plenty of TVs throughout to watch the two-minute race, all while noshing on a platter of smoked ribs, collard greens, and mac and cheese. Be sure to save room for pie!
